The pumpkin syndrome...

As you will recall, the reason John ended up having to dodge a perfume bottle is that he'd called Elly his little pumpkin and, having noticed that she couldn't wait to take it the wrong way, tried to defuse the situation by means of a mild joke. The really interesting thing about the whole mess is that she didn't seem to realize that John was trying in his own ham-fisted way to be affectionate. It's as if she'd never even heard the phrase used before and thought to herself "Pumpkins are round; therefore, John is calling me round!!" and so on into the hot water. What this tells us is that she's not nearly as smart as she'd like to think she is; what this all does is explain most of the pointless arguments she gets into over the years. Simply put, she doesn't like what she sees in the mirror, can't think too well and likes feeling bad about things.
